    Eatigo Discounts in Pattaya

    Used it Bangkok quite a bit. They do the buffets 50% off and used to always hit up Radisson Blu on a Friday. Nice international buffet with free wine and beer. Penisuela and the JW Marriott on Sukhumvit 2 I can recommend as well. Both get 50 percent off as well.

    Eatigo Discounts in Pattaya

    The following is an example of how Eatigo can save you money. I'm not a huge fan of Eatigo because it has limited usefulness, but under the right circumstances, it's definitely an advantage to have it. About two weeks ago, I had dinner with a farang friend and his TG at the SEA Restaurant in the Baraquda Hotel. The SEA wouldn't have been the first choice for any of us, but they were staying at the Baraquda and didn't want to go out because a heavy rainstorm had been forecast for the evening. I live close to the Baraquda and figured I could stay dry with an umbrella on the short walk. On the Eatigo app, I made a reservation for three at SEA for 8.00 p.m. We saved 920 baht by taking advantage of the Eatigo 50% disount. Our meals (starter, main and beverage) cost 1599 baht in total, but without the discount, would have cost 2,519 baht. The 60-baht "bonus" between the two prices came from the 7% VAT calculation with and without the Eatigo discount (860 baht). All the prices that follow are with the Eatigo discount, but without 10% service and 7% VAT. My friend had the Greek salad (120 baht) ... and baked "white snapper" (170 baht): His girlfriend had spring rolls (120 baht): and som tam with crab (90 baht): I had the pumpkin-and-ginger soup (really good!) for 120 baht: ... and the grilled duck breast (240 baht): All of us were happy with the food we had ordered. One thing the pics don't show is the basket of warm fresh bread and butter than preceded the starters. That's always a nice touch. We felt our meals with the discount were fairly priced for what we got. We were less happy with the beverage prices: 140 baht for a bottle of SML and the same (!) for the GF's orange juice. Beverages, whether alcoholic or non-alcoholic, don't fall under the Eatigo discount. If I break out my meal, I saved about 425 baht by using Eatigo. My friend saved 495 baht on the two meals for which he paid (they had less expensive mains than I did). Since there is no cost or hassle involved with Eatigo, I think it was a decent advantage to have used Eatigo under the circumstances. Evil

    Aye aye! Was a member years ago but fell by the wayside as Pattaya was no longer the draw it was! The forum was always good crack though! Was up at the Motogp and thought I would check back in as I am bored shitless in Buriram.

    Under 300 Baht ... And Good!

    I'll probably get some negative responses to the following review, but "Cry 'Havoc,' and let slip the dogs of war." I ate dinner at 7.00 p.m. a few nights ago at the Beer Garden at the Beach Road end of Walking Street. It wasn't my choice, but a friend from the U.S. wanted to eat there. I had had a bad meal at BG a few months ago and had more or less given up on the BG's food. The location and view make it a great place for a drink, but the food has become very hit-and-miss. I went there to keep him company and wasn't sure I would order a meal. He and his GF had arrived a few minutes before me and had gotten a table on the veranda in the section closet to the entrance. The music was so loud I told my friend I wouldn't sit there. He could barely understand what I said from across the table. Never before have I heard the music that deafening at Beer Garden. My friend called over one of the female managers and asked if the music could be turned down. She said it couldn't as it was controlled by computer, but offered to move us to the far end of the veranda where the volume was indeed much lower. That's a big plus on the service side for the BG. My friend ordered a garden salad for 80 baht and the fish and chips for 195 baht. He asked if he could substitute a baked potato for the chips and that was no problem. He thought it was a very good meal. I'm relating his opinion here, not mine. It was a big portion of salad for 80 baht. It came with two sorts of salad dressing and a small dish of potato salad. The vegetables that were supposed to be crispy were and the tomatoes had flavor, he said.He commented that he had had smaller plates of salad for a higher price in Pattaya that weren't as fresh as this one. He thought the fish was properly breaded and fried, still flaky on the inside. He didn't know what sort of fish it was- the menu didn't say- but said it tasted fine. It came with peas, tartar sauce and as requested, a baked potato instead of fries. His GF ordered ordered a spicy Thai salad and a bowl of soup, which I didn't bother to photograph. She said it was good, but I noticed she didn't eat all of it, She had a Singapore Sling for 200 baht along with her meal. I wasn't very hungry and ordered stir-fried vegetables with tofu and cashew nuts (120 baht) and an order of steamed rice (40 baht). Unfortunately, I can't say it was good. The tofu had a weird texture and I didn't eat much of it. The veggies were OK, but nothing special and the sauce was a bit too salty. Bottom line: My friend will continue to eat at the Beer Garden as he said he's never had a bad meal there. I probably won't, as it's been a long time since I've had a good meal at the BG. And if the music remains nightclub loud, I definitely won't even have a drink there unless I can be seated at the far end of the veranda. When we sat down about 7 p.m., there were a lot of seats available on the veranda. By eight p.m., when we chek binned, the veranda was full and the covered section roughly half-full. I noticed five groups of Asian tourists (with four to eight people in each) dining on the veranda. Neither he nor I could recall seeing as many Asians in BG before. It does seem to have expanded its customer base and remains one of the busier restaurants in central Pattaya. Evil

    Eatigo Discounts in Pattaya

    Never used the app just the mobile website which works fine. Had a good deal at Wine Connection in Bangkok. There is also a Wine Connection in Hua Hin that @ajsp9 likes but they don't offer discounts. Best deals from eatigo I reckon are the buffets at the global hotel chains in Bangkok.

    Well guys I have been back here for 9 days. In that time have revived the blog, offered to set up a media locker with TV, audio books and movies, made a contribution, put a shit load of content on here and been threatened by a Dutch hitman - guess he is going to hunt the earth for me. Sounds like a movie title - The Blog Killer. I have to concentrate on work now and have some medical stuff to do. So I am going to take a break for a few days. When I return I will have a lot more material and hopefully the locker will be set up and stocked. Tons more material to post. All the best Izi (The Smelly Trucker)

    I just got this in the mail from Tommy Robinson. I am on his mailing list. Dear Stephen, A few days ago, I stopped at a service station where four coaches full of British soldiers were taking a break. I said hello to the lads and some of them posed for “selfies” with me. It was my great honour to stand with our troops and shake their hands, even just for a few moments. But when the Muslim Council of the UK heard about this, they immediately demanded that the Army punish these soldiers — and to their shame, the Army did. These lads had their cell phones seized and inspected for “illegal” photos of me. And the Armed Forces’ official Islamic advisor, Asim Hafiz, condemned these men — before the investigation was even complete — telling reporters that "any form of racism, discrimination or extremism is taken extremely seriously and will be dealt with accordingly". What racism? What discrimination? It was just a photo. These are proud British soldiers. And now I have heard that at least one of these lads has been summarily discharged from the Army — just for standing next to me and smiling. That’s outrageous. That cannot stand. These lads are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. The least we can do is stand up for their freedom, too. I’m going to go down to the Ministry of Defence and hand-deliver a petition to the Chief of the Defence Staff, General Sir Nick Carter, demanding that this political witch-hunt be called off. I started the petition last night, and it already has more than 70,000 names on it. Please take a moment to add your name to it, too — I’d like to have over 100,000 signatures on it by tomorrow. Please click here, or visit www.StandWithOurLads.com — and forward this e-mail to your friends and family. These soldiers would do anything for us. Please take a minute to do something small for them. Yours truly, Tommy Robinson P.S. The British Army is being undermined by political correctness — but this is the worst I’ve seen. They’ve handed over decision-making to the Muslim Council. That can’t stand. Please sign the petition here, and type www.StandWithOurLads.com as your Facebook status! P.P.S. So many people have inundated that website, it might take a minute to get through — but please keep trying. Thank you!

    Eatigo Discounts in Pattaya

    Eatigo is a restaurant reservation app that gives users discounts up to 50% ,depending on the time of dining. Eatigo doesn't require prepayment or credit card information; all you need to sign up is a valid email address and a smart phone. It's easy to use once installed. Just select the restaurant, time you want to eat (30-minute slots) and the number of people who will be dining. Click the tab and you get an immediate confirmation code that you show to the restaurant staff when you arrive. That's all there is to it. There's no real downside or disadvantage for the user with Eatigo. Its shortcoming is the lack of relevance at present for many potential users. Pattaya has well over 1,000 restaurants but only 48 are listed on Eatigo. That's less than 5% of the total and not all the Eatigo restaurants are in central Pattaya. Some are a considerable distance, as far as 35 kilometers. Moreover, nearly two thirds of them (30 restaurants) are attached to three- to five-star hotels. The food in hotel restaurants is almost always more expensive than the equivalent food in stand-alone restaurants If we exclude the hotel and far-away restaurants, we're left with the following options: Six Indian restaurants in central Pattaya (Karma, Crown of India, Shalimar; Alibaba; Nisha and Suruchi), as well as the Robin Hood Tavern; The Kitchen (two restaurants); Retox Game On; Domino's Pizza on Pattaya Tai; Dicey Reilly's; La Strada; Kasalong; Easy Health; and Pizza Plaza in central Pattaya; Livv on the Darkside and the 8 Horseshoes Tavern in Jomtien. Some of the independent restaurants are specialized and wouldn't be of much interest in terms of everyday dining. Then there's the timing of the discounts. Only off-peak times yield a 50% discount, while the most popular times will give you 10% or 20% off, depending on the restaurant's location. Certainly 10% off is better than a kick in the nuts, but it won't make the big hotel buffets affordable to many punters. Also, the Eatigo discount applies ONLY to food, NOT beverages. That won't matter at restaurants like Retox Game On, Robin Hood and The Kitchen, but the hotel restaurants can charge 140 baht for a bottle of water- and that's their cheapest option. Any specials or promotions on food are excluded from the Eatigo discount. It only applies to regular menu prices. Finally, it is ++ pricing in many Eatigo-listed restaurants. Service and VAT are added, which usually increases the cost by about 17%. Bottom line: Eatigo is still a good deal if you want to eat in any of the restaurants listed, but is of limited use to most visitors and foreign residents in Pattaya. In its current form, it won't revolutionize Sin City dining. Eatigo lists about 650 restaurants in Bangkok, so it's of more use there. Nineteen restaurants in Chiang Mai are included on the Pattaya app. Eatigo also lists restaurants in Singapore, Hong Kong, India, the Philippines and Malaysia. Evil

    • Yangon – Myanmar: 5 days 4 nights
      Needed to do a visa run, so used the opportunity to visit Yangon together with Mrs. CampariO and her sister in law.
      Applied for an E-visa which arrived 1 day after, the ladies can get a visa exempt at the immigration in Yangon. Booked Air Asia for 2200 Bt/person, drove by car to Don Muang.

      Day 1: Flight from BKK to Yangon, Visit Shwedagon Pagoda and park

      The terminal 2 is now open

      Between terminal 1 and 2 is a large food court with a good choice of eateries.

      Checked in online, there is a remark on top of the boarding pass to do the document check (checking the e-visa) which is done in BKK at the gate while in Yangon at the baggage drop.

      Since when do they have the flight info in Chinese?

    • Dairy Farming in Thailand
      We have a small (54 rai) farm adjacent to Erawan shrine at the border of NBLP and Loei provinces. It is mostly orchards, e.g., Tamarinds, Kefir, Rubber, and Maoberry but last year we started dairy farming with an initial small seed herd of 25 Heifers with a business plan to build it up to 100 milkers within 5 years.

      One year into the BP we are at 30 milkers with another 8 coming of age in a few months and a total including calves of 45 with new ones arriving every month ... including the baby bull in brown and white in one of the pictures below. Any way, a few shots from this morning after some early hours helping momma deliver the new guy. Momma has some "splaining" to do ... she's one of the black & whites being chased in another photo and the little guy is brown and white like a longhorn ... maybe momma is getting some strange on the side.

      My mate Ziva ... a 5-month old Labrador.

      Some of the bovines including new mom and brown-colored stranger

    • Post A Picture Of Your Breakfast, Lunch Or Dinner
      As it says. lets see some food pictures.
      One of my hobbies is cooking and like to see what others are eating either at home or at restaurants. it gives me ideas what to cook or what to order when out. So lets see some pictures, either home cooked by you or your ladies, or what you have eaten while out.
      I'll start with my favourite. Rack of Lamb.

      This was last May. When I collected some fresh Asparagus from a local farm and it made a nice dish with pointed cabbage, Jersey Royal potatoes and a very nice mint sauce made with balsamic vinegar. All accompanied with a nice glass of Rioja to wash it all down.
      I have a nice lamb rack sitting in the fridge ready for tomorrow night.
